A Hopkins County Deputy responded to a possible assault in the 1500 block of Shannon Road Sunday evening. When the deputy arrived, he ensured the individuals were separated and asked Joshua Kenney Mandell, 33, of Dallas, to empty his pockets. A baggie containing a clear chrystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine fell from his left pocket. He also removed a black container from the same pocket. A search of the container revealed another baggie containing a white powdery substance believed to be cocaine. A K9 officer performed an open air sniff of Mandell’s vehicle and the K9 gave a positive alert on the vehicle. A pill bottle with Mandell’s name on it was found. However, inside the bottle was a baggie containing a white powder like substance believed to be cocaine and a baggie containing possible meth.
Mandell is in Hopkins County Jail held on two charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1, less than 1-gram.
